Can't Buy Me Love. The chords are great and the guitar solo is so fun to play! I'm working on All My Loving now, but Lennon's strumming is so fast and it is tricky to get the timing right!

You're right, guitargirl, AML is a real hand cramper! Last song I learned to play is "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party".

Those triplets are murder. If you watch him playing it on the Ed Sullivan shows, his hand is super loose - it would have to be! The little guitar solo in AML is a lot of fun.

Last song we learned in the band was Spiderwebs by No Doubt. That's a fun little song, and good for our new, all-girl band, lol.

He makes it look so easy! And I've almost got the guitar solo down but I'm struggling with the last bit.

Oh, and you are lucky that you have a band!

As its getting closer to December (YIKES where has the year gone?), everyday I'm fiddling around more and more with "Happy Christmas War is over". I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of the rhythm bit and trying to add some singing in, though I think its too low for my range (because I'm an alto and John sounded like...what...baritone? Meh whatever...)

Every year some family friends go out to a nursing home in T.O and my grandpa (who is in his 80s, but still very very young at heart) brings along a little electric keyboard and plays some of the favourites while our ragtag group of people belt out the songs. Sadly, silent night isn't always too "silent". *Sheepish grin* I've tried mentioning maybe we should throw in a little dynamics, you know start silently then build up, but, more often than not that gets forgotten.

I was really looking forward to it this year, they'll be going there on the 13th of December, however I'm in my first year of University, and my profs and TA's have been on strike since the 6th of November. (But thats another story) So... no one really knows when the strike will end, if it ends soon (and its looking unlikely because the last one in 2001 went on for 78 days or something) classes will likely over-run into just before X-mas. If there had of been no strike I would have been out by the 13th and would have been able to take part in the "caroling"

Oh well... I'm working on the song anyway, hopefully i'll still be able to go perform with them....and hopefully I'll have the song down by then!

And I just noticed the last post in this thread was December 26th last year!! lol

I've been focused more on the mandolin than the guitar lately but if I can play it on one I can usually play it on the other. Also I'm not the note for note reproduction cover kind of guy. I normally find the chords and lyrics and see what happens, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Recently I worked up Lady Madonna and relearned Across the Universe, both work well on the mandolin. I also started recording a version of Nobody Loves You When You're Down and Out with just mandolin, bass and vocals which is coming along nicely. Other recent learnings have been Sunshine by Johnathan Edwards and Lalena by Donovan and Love Hurts by Roy Orbison/Grahm Parsons/Nazerath.

I finally got the hang of "I'll see you in my dreams" on Ukulele... after murdering "Something" on same instrument.

Am learning the mandolin also: last thing i learned was REM's "Losing my religion"

As for guitar... last thing I had to learn was Clapton's "Lonely stranger"
